first_imgAfter years of negotiations, Norway and Germany have reached an agreement with ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) for the acquisition of new Type 212 CD (common design) submarines, the Norwegian Ministry of Defense said on 23 March. With the progress now achieved in the Norwegian-German strategic cooperation project U212CD, TKMS will be able to consolidate its partnership with Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KDA), which has already existed since 2017, and expand value-adding industrial partnerships in both Norway and Germany. As informed by the defense ministry, the total cost of the project is estimated at NOK 45 billion ($5.2 billion). Back in 2017, the two governments selected TKMS preferred bidder for the project. Within the scope of the contractually agreed industrial cooperation obligations, TKMS also plans to collaborate specifically with small and medium-sized Norwegian companies.

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge, shown celebrating after breaking the two-hour barrier for the marathon in Vienna, in October 2019, made the ultimate test run for Nike’s new Nike sprint and distance running shoes Just five days earlier, the global track and field governing body introduced tougher rules on footwear for competitors. Nike’s controversial Alphafly prototype shoes were worn by Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge when he broke the two-hour marathon barrier in Vienna last October. “For runners, records like the four-minute mile and two-hour marathon are barometers of progress. These are barriers that have tested human potential. When someone like Eliud breaks them, our collective belief about what’s possible changes,” says Tony Bignell, Nike’s vice president of Footwear Innovation. “Barriers are inspiring to innovators. Like athletes, when a barrier is in front of us, we are challenged to think differently and push game-changing progress in footwear design.” The NEXT% designs are aimed at maximizing sports science with design to boost body performance through technological enhancement.
